8-6-71, the Bertrando AUD recording is a spectacular Hard to Handle.

Absolutely the finest audience recording of its day! While I love the H2H from that day, I feel 4-28 edges it my a note--I mean a nose. No, I do mean a note.

No HtoH beats 8-6-71; sorry, but Jerry is simply unbelievable on that one. I have listened to them all. Sorry--got my dander up (since there is little hair, I take what I got).

One man's opinion, anyhow...would never stoop to start a fight with the likes of one of my old timer brethren.

Got to agree with Sir William Tell on these H2H's!

I love the Weir/Garcia interplay in 4/28/71, but nothing beats Jers nuclear leads on 8/6/71!

Of course, I am biased. I happened to be sitting in the 12th row left of center on 4-28-71--same seat I had for the run.

It isn't just Bob and Jerry--but the way Jerry looked at Phil in the middle of the jam and nudged him to take the lead for a couple of bars before they first statement of "the theme."

Hell, face it, they're all mighty fine! Shame they dropped the tune after Gaelic Park. No doubt, they smoked it because it was in regular rotation. That's theonly way they could keep that jam so tight. 4 months off--they stuck to "easier" Pig tunes.

Once Jerry dropped the pedal steel in the early versions, I rarely met a H2H that I didn't like. On the Spring of 1971 tour, they played it almost every night! It go tight--and the Winterland date ain't no slouch. I love the 2-14-70 version on Bear's Choice for a pre-Bobby version, but after Bob started taking a first lead (as he did on Easy Wind), the jam really started to soar.
